Folk/Americana singer-songwriter Aimee Van Dyne hails from Brooklyn, but currently calls Berkshire County her home. In New York, she has performed at venues such as The Bitter End and Rockwood Music Hall, where her live performances have been described as “three of the best voices in town soar(ing) through a uniquely imaginative blend of ideas.” Her original songs, a distinctive blend of Folk/Americana and Pop/Rock, are characterized by “catchy choruses and melodies that frequently evoke the thoughtful, George Harrison-side of the Beatles.” (New York Music Daily)
She is currently promoting her new CD, “Broken Love Songs” which was produced by multi-instrumentalist Jim Henry (Tracy Grammer, Eliza Gilkyson) and features a first-class team of musicians, including Jon Carroll (Mary Chapin Carpenter), Paul Kochanski (Lori McKenna), and Jon Graboff (Ryan Adams).
Aimee began writing songs while still a student at Brown University and then continued to write and record while studying architecture at The Cooper Union. In 2001, she released her first EP, “Owning Up,” while working as an architect in NYC. After taking time off to raise her twin daughters, Aimee embarked on a new journey, moving up to The Berkshires to pursue a career in music full-time. Her new CD is available at her web site, http://www.aimeevandyne.com, as well as all streaming services.
